"Fade to Black" gathers eleven titled, detachable images. Each of them constitutes the testimony of an artistic proposal by Parreno. The images are printed with phosphorescent ink and must be exposed to light and afterwards browsed in the dark to become visible. However, the images are doomed to disappear again as the amount of light is limited to its time of exposure. "Fade to Black" is the winner of the Specific Object 2005 Award. 32 pages 34 x 24 cm Limited edition of 520 copies, 60 signed copies and 20 artist’s proofs Produced and published in 2005 by mfc-michèle didier ©2005 Philippe Parreno and mfc-michèle didier
